Law Firm Giving Financial Advice Taking No New Cases
Kerry Steigerwalt's Pacific Law Center, a heavily-advertised law firm, as of today (June 30) is taking few if any new cases, although it will finish cases it is now working on, according to two knowledgeable employees at the firm. It may farm out new cases to other law firms. Steigerwalt's firm put out a press release that I have not been able to get. Nor have I been able to reach Steigerwalt or his executive assistant. It is not clear what the firm will do after it wraps up current cases. The firm, which resulted from a merger of Steigerwalt's firm and Pacific Law Center, has been specializing in driving-under-the-influence, personal injury, medical malpractice, and defective drugs and products cases. It also has a group of lawyers purportedly aiding people with financial problems. That group works on bankruptcy and debt relief matters. The firm has advertised heavily on Padres games. Ted Leitner has been a spokesman, lauding its services.
